The official Twitter plugin for WordPress is here

Tweet

Today, we’re releasing an official Twitter plugin for WordPress that bundles Twitter features and functionality into an installable package for sites powered by WordPress.

WordPress software powers millions of sites around the web from large global brands such as Katy Perry and Mercedes-Benz to your local grocery store. The official Twitter plugin for WordPress helps sites powered by WordPress embed Twitter content and grow their audience on Twitter.

Twitter Cards

Twitter Cards add link previews to Tweets. 

Twitter Cards help your content stand out on Twitter by providing additional rich context before users click. Our plugin automatically generates Twitter Cards for your webpages to highlight your content shared on Twitter.

Twitter Analytics

With Twitter Analytics, you can also associate your site and author Twitter accounts to track your content’s popularity on Twitter and grow your audience.

Embedded Tweets and video

Customize embedded Tweet colors from the WordPress admin interface.

Since there is unique content every day on Twitter, our new plugin for WordPress makes it easy to include an embedded Tweet on your website that matches your site design. Choose a widget theme, link color and border color from your WordPress administrative dashboard to visually integrate Tweets into your webpages and articles. We’ve also included support for video embeds to highlight Twitter video content.

Tweet button

Add a Tweet button to your posts from the WordPress administrative interface, which makes it easy for Twitter users to share your content with their followers. Our plugin automatically configures your Tweet button to include the URL of the post, site and author Twitter accounts, custom share text and hashtags specific to each post.

Follow button

Convert visitors into followers by placing a Follow button on every page. Our plugin makes it easy to add a Follow button to your WordPress theme’s widget area or alongside author information.

Twitter Advertising

If you’re also a Twitter advertiser, you can focus on campaigns and conversions without worrying about markup and browser optimizations. You can measure your ROI by tracking actions Twitter users take after viewing or engaging with your ads. Our plugin simplifies conversion tracking and creating a tailored audience with a WordPress macro.

Base library

We created this plugin to serve the common needs of most modern publishers while allowing for extensibility and WordPress API integrations by other WordPress plugins or site-specific customizations. All Twitter JavaScript is loaded through WordPress resource managers for optimized execution. Twitter Cards are customized by post format and post type. Sharing options are only presented for a public post status. The plugin is globally available in 28 languages. If you’re a PHP or WordPress developer interested in learning more,our full plugin code, including underlying PHP libraries, is available on GitHub under the MIT license.
